As AUJ approaches, it seems the Necromancer/White Council storyline is coming slowly but surely into place. However, there's still a fair amount we don't know as to how exactly things are going to play out. Listening to the score again, a track which stands out is "The Hill of Sorcery", which is placed in-between the Trollshaw and the attack of Wargs. Going on what we know, what on Earth is happening here?
-Benedict Cumberbatch AKA The Necromancer, is not in AUJ (or at least, has been removed from the official cast list)
-Gandy's scene where he's stalked through the ruins of Dol Guldur has been pushed back to Film 2, according to Empire...however, there may be two of these sequences, one where has not yet obtained Glamdring and encounters Thrain, another where he has Glamdring and fights Bolg...or are these both part of the same scene?
-The track itself begins a light repetition of the Hobbit theme, (probably a transition from the Trollshaw to Mirkwood), then the "spider motif" also heard in the track "Radagast the Brown", there's a quieter low-key grim mid-section, and ends with a dramatic rendition of the "Mordor/Sauron" theme
With these in mind, what could be happening at this point at Dol Guldur? IMO, it's likely we'll get a "fly-by" shot similar to how PJ approached Isengard in TTT, with some of the denizens of the fortress kind of lurking/moving about...but the majority of the scene will probably be Orc plotting/going after Raddy as he escapes the attack on Rhosgobel? Can't imagine how the Sauron theme comes into play, however, unless the Necro has a non-speaking cameo (though shouldn't BC still be credited as he performed mo-cap for the character as well)?
My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!
